About the blog

My name's Grace Howard, I'm 17 and live in North Yorkshire. I'm currently studying for my A-levels. Despite it being a million miles from my un-glam existence, I love fashion. But I don't love its associations with frippery, fluffiness and, well, very little else; while I can vouch for the charm of a good fluffy coat as much as the next Vogue-reading gal, I think it's easy to forget that the fashion industry is one of the UK's biggest industries (in terms of employment), meaning it's a lot more serious than you might think. I don't think there's anything stupid about fashion. I don't think an interest in clothes necessitates that you also have an interest in other 'banalities' like TOWIE, celebrity fitness DVDs or those magazines that you can buy for 40p from the supermarket full of 'real life' stories about women who married their sons, and sons who slept with their grandmothers and so on.
I just think that you should be able to enjoy what you enjoy, without feeling ashamed about it. The thing is, I don't have anyone to talk about fashion with. I like other stuff, like books and music and telly, which I can talk to my friends about, but nobody I know shares my passion for Christopher Kane and the Business of Fashion and hoarding fashion magazines. So this blog will hopefully become an outlet for such chat.
